Bing begins showing “latest posts”

One sure fire way to get a new feature noticed is to attach it to TechCrunch, and indeed TC noticed a new Bing feature yesterday that appears on Bing search results for “TechCrunch”:

The “Latest posts” feature only appears for certain websites (TechCrunch, New York Times, etc), and appears to be different than the “Top Headlines” feature that shows not the latest headlines, but perhaps the most popular ones?

We don’t have “Latest posts” showing up on a search for “LiveSide” (hey!, what’s up with that?) and it seems to be kind of hit or miss as to who has the new feature at this point, but it seems like it could be quite useful.  We’ll keep an eye on it.
